Both: Worried about which house they’ll live in next year
Senior Class Marshal election results were released early Monday morning, with Jennifer Q. Zhu ’14 and Christopher H. Cleveland ’14 named First and Second Class Marshal, respectively.
The Class of 2014 cast roughly 1,000 votes to choose their senior class marshal finalists, but it was a last-minute vote that created a tie among two of the candidates and resulted in the selection of 17 finalists, rather than the usual 16. The finalists, eight of whom will ultimately represent their class this year and beyond as marshals, were announced Thursday morning.
The first round of online voting for this year’s class marshals, who will represent the entire Class of 2014 and plan class-wide events throughout the academic year, began early Tuesday morning amidst enthusiastic campaigning efforts.
